Updated Expansions for $7 Secrets 2.8

| No Comments

Yes, you're right: it's been a very long time since I've posted here. The basic reason for that has been that, since my last post, I've been very busy with getting $7 Secrets 2.7, and then 2.8, together and out. Add to that my support activities on the support desk and the forum; getting out a new, Italian language version of $7 Secrets; and maintaining all of my previous commitments, and you can see why development at $7 Tools has lagged.

But now I'm pleased to announce new versions of most of the tools here, updated mostly to keep them compatible with $7 Secrets 2.8. Here's what we have:

  • Admin Expansion 1.2 and Admin Expansion Lite 1.2, offering a new interface for the 7DSS admin panel and 7DSS 2.8 compatibility

Admin Expansion 1.2 now requires 7DSS 2.8.

These new versions all require Admin Expansion 1.2, which means they also require 7DSS 2.8. (Previous versions compatible with 7DSS 2.7 are still available in your download area, but, hey, you should update to the latest versions for increased reliability.)

To download these updates, use the download link you were sent when you purchased. Remember, purchasers receive free updates for two years from date of purchase. If you have any questions, open a support ticket and I'll get back to you.

Updates and 2.7 Compatibility

| No Comments

I just wanted to check in briefly and let you know about some minor updates to my 7 Dollar Tools expansion products. Also, because the $7 Secrets Scripts have been updated, I've gone through each product to ensure compatibility with version 2.7.

To determine the versions you are currently using for the following products, log in to your admin panel. Use your original download links to update your products.

Admin Expansion Lite — current version: 1.1.2, 2.7-compatible: YES
- v1.1.2: Various changes for future expandability
- v1.1.1: Various changes for future expandability

(Use download link for Expansion Pack, Sell-Out Expansion)

Admin Expansion — current version: 1.1.1, 2.7-compatible: YES
- v1.1.1: Various changes for future expandability
- v1.1: Updated Test Mode to work with 2.7's "gather zips" feature

Expansion Pack — current version: 1.0, 2.7-compatible: YES

Sell-Out Expansion — current version: 1.0, 2.7-compatible: YES

The $7 Blacklist — current version: 1.0, 2.7-compatible: YES

Although these products are 2.7-compatible, I do NOT recommend that you update your 7 Dollar Secrets scripts installation at this point. I am currently beta-testing version 2.7.1, which appears to correct the issues I noted with 2.7; hopefully that will be released soon.

Lastly, I recently completed an installation for Admin Expansion user, Dylan Loh, who has just released a new product designed to show you how to find JV partners who will promote your products for you.

Announcing The $7 Blacklist

| No Comments

I was robbed last week. Someone clicked my link in the $7 Secrets forum to this website, then used their affiliate link to purchase my product. I was mad! Who is so cheap that they need to steal a $7 product? Well, that's the last time they'll do that to me, because I created The $7 Blacklist.

The $7 Blacklist is very simple to use: you upload it to your scripts directory, add one line to your index.php file (not necessary for Admin Expansion and Admin Expansion Lite users), and (optionally) set one preference. The $7 Blacklist immediately begins protecting you from affiliate fraud.

Every time someone comes to your site with an affiliate link, The $7 Blacklist checks the affiliate ID against an online database of known abusers of the $7 Secrets Scripts affiliate system. If the affiliate ID is in the Blacklist, the affiliate cookie is not set and, optionally, the the 7DSS fraud page is shown.

To make this product successful, I need you to do two things. First, download and use The $7 Blacklist. It's free for all users of 7 Dollar Secrets scripts. Second, report affiliate fraud at the link below. Sure, losing $7 is a drop in the bucket, but if we allow these thieves to continue their behavior they will steal from the rest of us.
